I just started collecting DE last month, and I haven't painted a full army since year 1999, I guess.

Here is what i've done with some kabalites and wyches, I am looking for a pale look (not as pale as ghosts, but white rather than black) but Ihad some issues with highlighting and painting details.

My main concerns are:
- is my color scheme pertinent ? it looks a bit too much like deathwing termis. Maybe some black or red on shoulder could make it look less like "white primer" or "stone statue"
- how to paint eyes properly on kabalites (I've seen many tutorials for glow effect on a dark outfit, but how to manage this on a clear helmet), and which color? green / red / blue / yellow ?
- how to paint these combat drugs pipings and other small details?

I think they look cool and don't mind them looking like deathwing colored. THe splinter rifles look awesome!

But you could try and paint shoulder pads red, should look good. And maybe their pants, clothes on neck and over the mouth?

I am still wondering if i should use white lignings on the bone/white armor parts, or only successive drybrushes.
I tried some lignings on test miniatures, but unfortunately I am not skilled enough to make them properly... Maybe I should practice.

You're right about the cloths (on wyches especially). I will consider painting the leather parts on the wyches' heads in dark grey. It might give some more contrast with the flesh (I am not very happy with it, and i can't paint eyes properly...)

Hm... I'ld like some more red instead, but dark grey would risk making the model look boring I think. Anyways, good luck on practise and painting!

You should also consider drybrushing the runes on the armour with a different color (maybe in your case red). Utilising drybrushing it's very easy with maximum result.

Think it looks very nice, however I also agree with what those above has said; I think something more should be added, some rune or additional colour.

Thanks all for the advice.
I'll give a try with more red : runes, cloths on wyches, kabalites eyes

white and red is cool, u could stay as is and add some stuff later,
u just need to find a cool color for the eyes imo
a sky blue maybe ? or blue/green, go full french powa bleu blanc rouge :p

if u want to go ugly just put some weathering and blood splatters
weathering is fun and easy and is very effective onto white armor. paint the foot of ur warrior like the color of the base for some realism maybe (brown/orange pigments)

u could try some red neon style (pink red or orange red) on ur gun and drugs (i did mine in green neon) with some gloss varnish ofc :p
but red is a real pain to lighten its more easy to go for pink or orange

i hope it help a bit

I just added some red in the eyes + one spot of pink , and I'm pretty happy with the result now.
I very lightly washed the rune on the helmet with carroburg crimson.
Now I need to be more careful with details such as the little spikes on shoulder pads, or the "bone" thing on the cloth between the legs.

Yes, very nice. Getting the most out of all the details will make your models really stand out on the tabletop. DE models are really suited for this.

Gorgeous! Now, paint the cloth green so I can see if that works as well!

No I'm joking, I'ld like to see your army in this color scheme, looks very cool. Also, I don't think that it reminds me of DA deathwing anymore.

Wyches with more red ... not sure, but it looks better to me.
I tested two miniatures with a full red on the chest. I don't knwo what to think about these guys...
